TypeScript (TS) smart contract

Write smart contracts in TypeScript - powered by QANplatform

The new era of smart contracts by QANplatform has arrived.

The QAN Virtual Machine (QVM) allows developers to write smart contracts in any programming language. This is a breakthrough for the whole blockchain ecosystem since most blockchain platforms are only compatible with the Ethereum smart contract language, Solidity.

Launching in 2023, QANplatform will be the first quantum-resistant Layer 1 hybrid blockchain platform where developers can write smart contracts in any programming language. Before the official private and public blockchain launch, QAN is publishing some puzzle pieces of its upcoming technology, such as the QVM, where developers can test the multi-language smart contract feature on the Ethereum Sepolia Testnet as a Layer 2 smart contract execution engine.

Following the Go (Golang) smart contract, JavaScript (JS) smart contract, C smart contract sample release, the QANplatform is releasing the documentation and the first smart contract sample for TypeScript programming language.

TypeScript programming language

TypeScript is a statically typed superset of JavaScript that was developed and is maintained by Microsoft. It adds optional static type checking, classes, interfaces, and other advanced features to JavaScript, making it more scalable and easier to maintain. TypeScript is designed to improve the development experience of large-scale JavaScript applications and is becoming increasingly popular among developers due to its many benefits. Its syntax is very similar to JavaScript, which makes it easy for developers who already know JavaScript to learn and use it. The popularity of the language rocketed in the past decade and helds firm in fourth place year-over-year on the list of top programing languages according to GitHub. TypeScript is one of the most loved programming language after Rust according to Stackoverflow.

TypeScript is used in many industries, by companies such as Asana, Bitpanda, TypeForm, or American Airlines.

However there are some TypeScript samples, libraries, SDKs, and APIs where developers can interact with a blockchain (e.g. query the blockchain, send transactions, interact with a node), there are only few blockchains where developers can code smart contracts in TypeScript. QANplatform allows developers to build: smart contract, DApp, DeFi, DAO, token, CBDC, NFT, Metaverse, and Web3 solutions in TypeScript.

Benefits of TypeScript smart contracts

Suppose you are a single developer looking to play around with blockchain. In that case, you can finally do that since you are not forced to learn a new programming language in your free time, like Solidity - which you could only use for specific purposes. Instead, you can use your current TypeScript knowledge that you may possibly already mastered for several years or even a decade.

If you are a CEO, CTO, CINO, CBDO looking to innovate with blockchain technology you can benefit from QANplatform’s multi-language smart contract feature as well. No need to hire or train Solidity programmers, since you can already use your inhouse development team or your current IT partner. It makes talent acquisitions, development, and codebase maintenance easier and cost-efficient for enterprises.

It’s time to write your first smart contract in TypeScript

Blockchain platforms only reward validators (miners, stakers) and node providers in their own utility tokens; however, smart contract developers are the ones who are building use cases and products on the blockchain to reach mass adoption. Imagine that GitHub would reward developers when their code is getting re-used by others. QANplatform will reward developers on the QAN MainNet; therefore, you can already prepare some code libraries while playing around with QAN Virtual Machine and TypeScript smart contracts.
